Campgrounds and dunes

Punta Sabbioni lighthouse

The Littorale del Cavallino, the 10km peninsula that protects the northern part of the Lagoon, was long known as a semi-wild place of beach, sand dunes and pine forests. There’s still some of that left, among the 35 camping grounds, hotels and restaurants. There are two ports on the littorale: Punta Sabbioni and Treporti.
